Aussie Blues

A small selection of blue images courtesy of Tracy who lives in Australia and blogs at  Reflections of An Untidy Mind. She posted the images Aug 15, 2018 and I spotted the post yesterday when it appeared as a “related post”.

  1. I just learned this weekend that the bird of paradise plant can produce white flowers. Tony Tomeo provided a photo in his blog. The pelican was a surprise, too. It’s both the same and not the same as ours, but it looks lovely on that water.

    1. Thanks for the Link to that post by Tony. White flowers, occasionally with blue streaks – wow. Navy blue husks! I love this line from his post: “The navy blue floral husks with nectar dripping from them look like the beaks of drooling seagulls..”

      1. If I’d just happened across the white ones in a garden without knowing about them, I’d have been really stunned. I’ve never imagined them being anything else other than what we see all the time!
